EP. 17 - An EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with one of your own! CSSP listener EZRA VANCIL

We've had interviews with some great pro songwriters and even a legendary character or two (and all were interesting, entertaining and informative); but never has one been as fun and fascinating as our recent Skype session with Dallas, Texas-based COMMERCIAL SUICIDE SONGWRITING PODCAST fan and listener, EZRA VANCIL.

You may well have heard Ezra's work in episodes of television shows like CELEBRITY REHAB, SOBER HOUSE and SKINS (UK).

Ezra has had a Hollywood-worthy journey in music, from touring and performing with his family's gospel group as a child, to a seemingly "sure thing" high-level management deal and recording contract with a band in the early 90's (complete with all the drama and excess you'd expect), to recent unexpected success in songwriting and publishing. His is a story that will have you on the edge of your seat, and is likely to leave you inspired as well.
